Ausfans Radio: Bonus Rogue One Spoiler Review gives a summary of the film and Alan’s opinions. This one is also a short episode at just 12 minutes.

Beltway Banthas: Episode 19 begins with guest Joseph Tavano as they talk about how Retrozap started, white supremacists boycotting Rogue One, Bob Iger joining an advisory committee for Donald Trump, Adam Driver’s comments on Kylo Ren being a terrorist, and comparing the First Order to real world entities. Then they talk with guest Brittany Hunter about the factions of the Rebellion in Rogue One as they look at American history with the likes of John Adams and Samuel Adams. They get into the middle east, terrorist groups, Arab Spring, the Death Star and different types of rebels. It’s a very intriguing conversation. Great stuff. Continue Reading Podcasts in Review…
